How I Retired at Age 29

I started a company at age 17.

I started a company called “MJ’s Be YOU LLC” at age 17, which later turned into a business consulting firm called Direct Consultants, LLC.

I joined the military.

This is me after graduating MOS school.

I purchased someone else’s business then flipped it.

I started a company called MJ’s in 2016. We now have MJ’s Closet and MJ’s Closet For Men.

I worked with public figures on different projects.

This is me meeting and working with my favorite basketball player, Allen Iverson, in a commercial for ESPN.

I partnered with other companies to expand my business.

This is me after accepting the partnership with Canvas, a boutique store in Charlotte, for MJ’s.

I wrote a book.

This is my first book called “Peace, Power, Purpose, Prosperity, but what about Perseverance.

I modeled internationally.

This is me modeling for a tourist ad in Hiroshima, Japan.

I used my skill of writing to start a temporary magazine.

This is me after a state meeting discussing how people who are overlooked should be given the opportunity to suggest and execute new ideas for the city. I later wrote about my experience in my magazine called MJ’s Be YOU magazine.

I had multiple streams of income.

I have been nominated and won several awards.

This is me winning the Armed Forces Appreciation Award from ACHI Magazine in 2017.

I helped other people.

This is me volunteering at Speak Up Magazine. I volunteered at the magazine for three years.

I hosted a temporary TV show that gave local businesses and talent the opportunity to showcase their lives behind the scenes.

This is me filming the introduction for MJ’s Be YOU TV.

I hosted events for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

I did radio, podcast, and TV interviews.

This is me on a flyer to be interviewed by a radio station about my career and business in South Carolina.

I took huge risks.
